Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


Winter is for Teens:
Go Throw Them From the Mountain

With snow comes snowplows. With snowplows comes truly massive snow piles. With massive snow piles comes dangerous games. Know what I’m getting at? What better way to celebrate this little gift from mother nature than a rousing game of King of the Mountain? One of the most barbaric of playground games, King of the Mountain involves scaling to the top of a large snow-pile and staking your claim, tossing would-be royalty off without letting them de-throne you. Generally any place that has a big parking lot will have a big hill suitable for playing, so scout those out, and let the games begin. Officially: King of the Mountain is really dangerous, especially as you plummet down to the concrete. Plus it’s really naughty, as most businesses in charge of parking lots don’t like it. Unofficially: It’s a blast.
